Thewet Market

Orchids, chilis, tamarind soap, and smelly fish

Save to my Account

This small food and produce market stretches down lanes and roads in every direction. The covered area that runs along the canal toward the river has cooking supplies and a lot of fish and gets a bit malodorous. But along the west side of Samsen you’ll find a lot of nice produce: cucumbers, chilis, Thai herbs.

Across the street are soap sellers with the good Thai scents: camphor, tamarind, and other herbal treats. Down Luk Luang, which runs along the north side of the canal, there are a few more stands. Across the canal and toward Thewet Pier there is a flower and plant market with some Feng Shui supplies. Don’t forget to play Let’s Make a Deal.
